Board members serve for a term of two years and can serve for no more than three consecutive terms in the same office. Most officers begin serving appointed (App. in the chart above)by the board and ratified by the membership at the subsequent annual meeting to fill out a term where the existing officer has resigned mid-term. Official terms start in even numbered years for the President, secretary, VP of public affairs, VP of Internal Affairs, and in odd numbered years for the remaining officers. The Student Liaison is a special position appointed by the board.
